- 4 Tbs. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 Tbs. confectioner's sugar
- 2 quarts cold water
We also added 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and a pinch of cinnamon, hoping to give our concoction a cola, rather than a lemon lime, sort of taste. But, first we did a quick test with a little baking soda, lemon juice, vanilla, and cinnamon, just to make sure there wasn't anything in the vanilla, or cinnamon, that would neutralize the reaction.
Then, we mixed all of our ingredients together, saving the lemon juice for last.
Satisfied, that a reaction was taking place, and we had a fizzy drink, I poured a sample for my oldest - the official taste tester.
Apparently, while the lemon juice did react with the baking soda to produce bubbles, it did nothing to neutralize the baking soda taste.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
